Craiglist.

Pavers or Bricks can be had cheap if you get them in time

Years ago my dad used 4'x8' sheets of durock cement board over gravel as a temporary shop floor before pouring the slab. You can get 3'x5' sheet at Home Depot for $10. There is a textured side and a smooth side. It can last for quite a while under normal use, but highly concentrated loads will make it start to crumble.

I like your light setup, I need to do something like that in mine. Man, I bet your meter really gets spinning when those things are on.

i dont know honestly, they use less juice than a regular 100w bulb and right now the shed and the shop are all running on 20 amp breaker (not ideal trust me,gonna change) and i havent tripped the breaker once. not even running my 4 hp air compressor (not one pictured)

Cool build and glad I could inspire you of the ways of tent garages.

As for a floor, I would go to a co-op or Tractor supply type place and get a few rubber floor horse mats. It'll give you a flat surface for rolling a jack on, keep you out of the gravel, and not rot or break like wood or pallets. Just a thought.

I like the light setup and I have to say that DAMN that's one big tent.

I can see it in 5/10 years with metal siding, and concrete floor.

To stay out of the gravel, just use a sheet 1/2 ply wood. Got oil leaks? use cardboard.

edit: empty garage and rototill in some portland cement, water and pack. Not perfect, but it will hold fine.

I would just leave it as is, this will allow time for it to age and look like it belongs there. Then maybe this fall think about the floor. Might be easier to just pour a concrete pan on top of the gravel. This will help keep ground water out too as it will be a bit higher. Still a temp structure on a concrete pad.

I wish I could stick my compressor outside like that, but it just gets too damn cold here in the winter.
